Splat! …An Allegory.


There you go…your project made an ugly mess on the floor!  (The visual is so good you can almost hear it go… splat!)  What do you do next?  You might be discouraged, but there are options.  

For one thing, you have discovered one more way to fail.  You don’t have to do that again!

But wait….who said it’s an ugly mess?  Maybe you just need to add more colors, or connect the dots, or find another splat to join you!  Maybe you need to let it dry, and hang it on the wall for about a year….the change of perspective might give you new ideas!

Maybe you need a bigger paint brush, and a bigger canvas, and invite more people to paint with you!

Won’t those nay-sayers be surprised when you succeed!

Now go on and make a jolly good mess!
